Four homes in Harrogate and Knaresborough have been targetted by sneak-in burglars in recent weeks.
Police are warning homeowners to be vigilant following the spate of burglaries where expensive jewellery has been stolen.
A £2000 diamond necklace has was stolen from Abbey Mill Gardens in Knaresborough on March 3 and several gold chains and a Citizen eco drive watch was stolen from Westminster Drive in Burn Bridge on February 26.
On March 9, at approximately 11.45am burglars climbed through a bedroom window in Riverside Gardens, Langthorpe, Boroughbridge. Items of Jewellery were moved but nothing was stolen. Police believe the occupier of the house disturbed the offender before anything was taken.
